CLUBS NICKNAMES

Recommended Posts

 

Banbury Town's nickname is The Gay Puritans. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I kid you not! Though I think they may have dropped the Gay part recently. That's political correctness for you... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

 

One of the League Of Wales teams nicknames is The Black Dragons! Quality! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

 

And I'm definitely not ashamed of the unoriginal by highly appropriate E's.

 

The Shamen were obviously fans of Enfield.... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

with a bit of luck we might get the chance to put that to the test next year.......

well....we're second and its in our own hands....just

 

six left to go and 12 more points will probably do it.....but...we all know the score...we'll take nothing for granted and keep going...there'll be a few twists and turns yet....look at the table....2,3,4,5 are all still in it for that second spot......we'll see....

 

maybe our 'patron saint' will look down upon us favourably.....!

Merthyr Tydfil can't claim England's first Christian martyr though, can they!?


Not totally convinced you can either, as England did not exist at the time of Alban's death.

Further, you should perhaps be more specific and claim the land later to be known as England's first known Christian martyr.

Sorry, but I do like an academic quibble. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Well, no, it's not quite as catchy I suppose. But accurate.

 

EFM Flamefast is actually the company in Manchester that make Gasguards, automatic saftey gas valve things that you put in school science laboratories.

 

Just thought you'd like to know.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Borough of Enfield have two E's - Enfield and Edmonton - before Edmonton FC dissappeared in the mid 1970's.

Picking original nicknames was obviously not on the agenda (ETFC = ET's or Townies or Towners).

And aren't Brimsdown Rovers called 'The Rovers'?

I take it Cockfosters are either Cocks or Fosters.

 

Regards

We were originally nicknamed the citizens.

I like Braintree's "The Iron", we all know what that's slang for!

Why did this thread reappear after a year anyway?


Careful Braintree's nickname is just IRON, unlike West Ham who are known as "the Irons" as well as "the hammers".

Iron was a carry over nickname from their predecessor club Crittall Athletic the works side for the steel window frame business based in the town.
